Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    Have a grand weekend all. Dunedin is looking particularly Sunny right now, I’d just like to say.

    My Siberian tomatoes have hatched but don’t look as strong as the instructions said they would! They need a taste of real soil, and then I will check their frost hardiness!

      Keep us posted on the toms Dan, last year my whole crop got the blight and I am interested to see how other growers get on. Here in Wellywood last summer was cold winds and damp, great for virus etc. If your tomato strain comes up trumps to the weather great, spread the word.

      I have been contemplating the fishing season for trout coming up. Went to the dreary Tongariro recently, got fish but the locals were lamenting catfish in the lake, which are competing for the rainbows food. Not good, dont know how the catfish got into the lake.

    • Excuse my ignorance but what are Siberian Tomatoes ? Sound exciting .

        PP, I picked up the seeds at Oderrings in Christchurch. I guess they are a variation of Russian Reds! They are meant to provide an early crop due to their ability to survive any late frosts. I’m all for trying something new. They also do not grow too high which suits our windy microclimate.

    Worked on our community garden in Papakura. We shoveled and wheelbarrowed a heaped trailer load of donated horse manure.

    I suggested that it be made an olympic sport.

    Someone else suggested that it be entered as a synchronised team event.
